Abstract [en]

This presentation summarizes findings from our studies on the biological underpinnings of recovery, asking respondents to complete a measure of self-rated recovery from work and to provide biological data. Examining the relationships between self-rated recovery and salivary cortisol in 25 white-collar workers revealed that high morning cortisol is associated with poor recovery. Analyses of linkages between self-rated recovery and biological dysregulation in 241 women employed within the health care sector showed that poor recovery increases the risk for biological dysregulation. These linkages between self-rated recovery and biological markers imply that poor recovery from work increases the risk for health problems.
